I sent a message to Manuel, who has been kind enough to answer very quickly. As a matter of fact, I happened to stumble upon a real bug, since Manuel had decided that luainputenc should not load luatextra anymore; but failed to check that luainputenc did not use any alias defined by luatextra. A revised version of luainputenc should be on its way to CTAN correcting the bug.

He also pointed out that the other bug I reported (\hbar being defined twice) was a side effect of loading luatextra, hence fontspec. Hopefully, with the new version of luainputenc, loading luatextra won't be necessary anymore and this second bug will automatically vanish. My first example shall compile again with my favourite choice of fonts :

\usepackage{lipsum, fouriernc}

Anyway, it's been quite instructive for me to read all your answers in and outside the list : thank you all for your patience and cooperation,
